Marrakesh, Morocco · Member since June 2012

Hi, I'm Shona and I live in Edinburgh, although I like to spend as much of my time in Marrakech as I can. I have been visiting Morocco for over 20 years, and I bought my first riad there in 2007. Riad Shaden is my second guesthouse in Marrakech, and I bought it in 2010.
I love the medina of Marrakech and I love the traditional riad houses, which give visitors a unique holiday experience.
Riad Shaden has a staff of 4, managed by Youssef, who speaks English, French and Spanish. He is assisted by Said, who also speaks English and French. We also have Saadia and Sanaa, who will cook and clean for you during your stay.
Our driver, Abdul, also speaks English, and will pick you up from the airport on arrival. He can also take you on excursions from Marrakech, to the mountains, the desert or the coast. Just ask for details.
We rent individual rooms or the whole property, and we love to cater for special events, birthdays etc. Let us know your requirements when you book, and our team will look after you all the way.
